8:19 am
i did not have high expectations. i think the democrats did not learn their lesson from 2010 when they try to detach themselves from the president's policies. parties. those i think it is naïve you can -- to think you can caucus with the president on policies and then detach from the election. >> what his policies are not the policies of the american public? >> the truth is, we should have debated policies the railway. , i think it is a debate democrats should have taken. minimum wage, it was on five ballots. all five ballots slept. four of those ballots were republican states are arkansas, nebraska, south dakota. it annoyed. not going tou're vote democrat, does not make a difference one way or the other.
8:20 am
